Evernote’s answer to messy desks

By The Editors

Dad quote of the day: “A place for everything, and everything in its place.”

Hat tip to 19th century dad-type Charles Goodrich for that maxim.

And another hat tip to the good people at Evernote, who decided to divert from organizing your digital ephemera just long enough to address your cluttered desk.

A collaboration with the design team at Oakland’s Pfeiffer Lab, Evernote’s Pfeiffer Collection is a trio of clever desk organizers that’ll tame even the most disorganized of workspaces.

And look a damn sight better than anything you’ll find at Office Depot.


Cable-wrangling tablet stand: check.

Tray for the miscellany: check.

Pencil cup to end all pencil cups: check.

Order achieved with a walnut grain.

That’ll make papa proud.

Nota bene: If your online workspace could still use a little sprucing, check these clutter-clearing apps, care of our National bureau.
